TV and film firm See-Saw swings in for Scarlett’s letters

See-Saw Films has bagged the TV rights to Scarlett Thomas’ Oligarchy in a "hotly contested" auction held by Curtis Brown’s Luke Speed.

The novel follows the daughter of a Russian oligarch after her friend mysteriously vanishes at the English boarding school they attend.

Canongate acquired world rights earlier this year from Curtis Brown’s Cathryn Summerhayes, and will publish as a fiction lead in November.

See-Saw’s credits include "Top of the Lake".
